Sometimes, when Animal Planet's gator boys are trying to relocate a gator away from people or a populated area, things aren't so easy.
They always try and hand capture the gators, but when that's too tough, like in this clip where the water is too murky to see anything, sometimes they have to go fishing for the alligators.
They don't bait the hooks, because if the gator swallows it (which they almost always do) they die.
Check out the above video to see the gator boys remove a gator from a boat launch area and possibly save its life by doing so.

Animal Planet's Gator Boys describes itself as:
"[…] the death-defying exploits of Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle , two extraordinary alligator trappers who risk injury and death to hand capture nuisance alligators that have invaded the backyards, swimming pools, garages and bedrooms of Florida Everglades residents."
So they try and use the most humane techniques possible to capture gators so they don't do harm to the gators and the gators can't do harm to others.
In the above clip they show that not only boys can be gator handlers… there are gator girls too!
